Participation

Anyone over the age of 18 who is living in the United States will be able to join the All of Us Research Program, either directly through the JoinAllofUs.org website or through participating health care provider organizations. NIH plans to begin enrolling participants in 2017. Children will be able to join in the future, potentially within the next 1-2 years.

Participants will be asked to contribute information about their medical history and lifestyle. Participants may also be asked to have their physical measurements (blood pressure, height and weight, etc.) taken at a local enrollment center, or donate a blood and urine sample. Participants will have access to their study results, along with summarized data from across the program. All of this will be accomplished with essential privacy (pdf) (396 KB) and security safeguards  (pdf) (246 KB) in place.

The All of Us Research Program is a highly interactive research model, with participants as partners in the development and implementation of the research and with significant representation in program governance and oversight. Through this dynamic community, researchers will be able to advance the information derived from the program into new knowledge, approaches, and treatments.

To be most effective, the All of Us Research Program is engaging a wide variety of partners across many different communities. NIH and its partners will launch a communications campaign when enrollment begins so that people across America know the time has come to join.
